We publish much of the material on our website in a 24 volume publication series for the use of museum staff, museum visitors, for sale to the general public, and for the collections of state and local libraries and other institutions.

Museum publications range from a few issues of Volume 1 to multiple editions of the Registry of Maine Toolmakers.  In the following site index, use of the term "Volume" refers to our organizational format for our publication series.  In Section 2, many of the publications of our Environmental History Department are re-publications of materials previously printed by the Center for Biological Monitoring.
